Overview of Location

Gunung Mulu National Park is nestled in the Malaysian State of Sarawak on the island of Borneo. Mulu’s spectacular biological significance puts it on the map of UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

52,000 Hectares of pristine equatorial rainforest awards visitors to Gunung Mulu National Park with an outstanding diversity of flora and fauna. Gunung Mulu stands poised at 2,376m high, dominating an area of deeply incised canyons, wild long winding rivers, limestone pinnacles jutting into the sky towering over dense vegetation that sweeps down onto a remarkable concentration of caves, revealing a geological history of over more than 1.5 million years. Fascinating facts lurk at every corner.

With the abundant resource of geomorphic and structural characteristics─ over seventeen vegetation zones exhibiting some 3,500 species of vascular plants─ scientists, naturalists and travelers are granted dramatic landscapes, breath-taking scenery and an elevated understanding of the Earth’s history.

 

More about Camp 5 and the Mulu Pinnacles

A series of 45 meter-high razor-sharp limestone spikes poke out from the enveloping lush vegetation. It is a real-life postcard from the past to present, capturing centuries of water erosion that has dissolved rocks into spears which knife skywards through the surrounding rainforest.

The trek to see Pinnacles is one of the most popular trails in the park but very challenging and requires a certain level of fitness. The route to the Mulu Pinnacles involves a longboat ride along Melinau River, 9KM trekking to Camp 5, and a steep 2.4KM hike up the Pinnacle Summit Trek.

Camp 5 is situated near the Melinau Gorge which separates Gunung Benarat from Gunung Api.  There are hostel –style accommodation at the camp with basic shower and cooking facilities. The Melinau River in front Of Camp 5 is Crystal clear and ideal for a swim after the trek from Long Berar.

More About the Mulu Show-caves

Mulu’s four show caves sums up the sheer beauty and uniqueness that makes Gunung Mulu National Park a remarkable and significant World Heritage Site. Mulu offers visitors to explore the cave system without necessarily needing caving or spelunking experience. A plankwalk leads through the forest to Deer Cave and Lang’s Cave whilst Clearwater Cave and Wind Cave are reached by taking a longboat up the Melinau River, or by following a 4 km nature trail.

All of the show caves can be visited as day trips from the Park HQ and are delightfully accessible by raised plank-walks and well lit paths. Lighting is strategically positioned around the show caves to highlight the features of individual caves, such as the intricate Stalactite and Stalagmite formations at Lang’s Cave.

More About the Mulu Marriot Resort

Just 5 minutes from Gunung Mulu National Park is the 5-star Mulu Marriot Resort and Spa, set in the thicket of Mulu’s lush tropical reserve. The resort boasts a native allure, beautifully designed in style of ethnic longhouses.

Waken each morning in a luxurious room suspended on a walkway set in the forest.

Unplugging from the outside world, indulge in a Balinese-style spa and cool off in an outdoor pool or on your private balcony overlooking the rainforest or the scenic Melinau River. Evenings can be well-spent around a spacious lobby, banquet hall, riverside bar and business center. Internet access via satellite is limited within the Business Center only.

Breakfast / Lunch / Dinner Base Camp 5
Day 3

BASE CAMP 5 / MULU PINNACLES / BASE CAMP 5

After an early breakfast, commence your hiking at 6AM.  
The trail is 2.4 km in length but rises some 1,200 meters from Camp 5 to the viewpoint, passing through lowland dipterocarp forest before climbing steeply through moss forest. The trees are a lot smaller and much of the vegetation is covered in slippery green moss. Limestone debris also litters the trail so trekkers must proceed with care.

The last section of the trails is nearly vertical, with rope section and 15 aluminums ladders strategically positioned to help with the climb up the rocks. The vegetation is sparse amidst the limestone rocks.

The climb to the summit will take an average of 4-5 hours.  
Upon reaching to the summit, enjoy the breathtaking scenery of the majestic Mulu Pinnacles as you eat your packed lunch.

Due to the steep compact trail, it normally takes a longer time to descend, with an average of 5-6 hours.

Upon arrival back at camp, you can relax and go for a swim in the Melinau River beside Camp 5.

After dinner, rest for the night.
